can legally marry. marriage is usually a state law matter but under the federal defense of marriage act, a law passed in 1996, the federal government does not recognize those marriages. in that situation, a gay couple who is legally married in boston, cannot file a joint tax return. they cannot get benefits under social security for their spouse like another merit couple would. a series of lawsuits have been filed a federal appeals court in boston and new york ruled tartabull law is unconstitutional. it denies gays and lesbians equal protection under the law. they are legally married. the court said they deserve the same legal rights. the obama administration would not defend that law. the house republicans appointed john clement. many of those cases are under appeal and they will surely decide one of those cases this spring host: is there one more likely than the other? guest: that is an inside baseball question. the problem that arose is that elena kagan was the solicitor general when some of those cases were beginning and she mentioned at her confirmation hearings that she had pa

does he fit in? >> he was assistant secretary of defense and very friendly with president kennedy. and i included that phone call. it's just a short phone call, but it's fascinating because they are contemplating and really envisioning the first boarding of a soviet vessel that will put this quarantine to the test. and they don't know what the result will be. will the soviets fire back? and kennedy, as he did throughout the crisis, is saying whenever possible, use the minimum amount of force. and he just wants to understand it. they were smart to, because their military brass were spoiling for a fight throughout the crisis. and secretary mcnamara also had a lot of problems on his hands talking with the admirals and the generals. they were trained to fight. that was their job, and they wanted to. and the secretary mcnamara and the president were also doing their job, saying hold on. what are the steps? and they're trying to understand the 20 steps that are involved in the boarding of a soviet vessel. and they were correct to, because any errant shot might have led to the firing of

[inaudible] saying the country is basically stuck for several months. nothing is happening politically, economically paralyzed, so may be it is a good idea for morsi -- maybe it is a good idea for morsi to take power and move the country forward. >> thanks for that update. a palestinian man is dead after being shot by israeli soldiers as he approached the security wall at the gaza border. >> it

for having to excuse myself, whether you all got into the defense budget. so here is what no one wants to talk about. the defense budget is that about $800 billion a year. the united states commitment to the military budget is greater than the military budget of the next 10 highest military spending nations combined. those 10 nations together -- together spend about 50 -- 450 billion. we spent 800 billion. now here is the trick. our money is heavily invested in sophisticated military hardware. very sophisticated pieces of equipment, which truthfully impact our domestic economy. but the truth of the matter is the discussion about budgets from having put many, many budgets together is not a discussion just about money. it is a discussion about priorities and values. and we have to determine, you know, to me when you talk about what the deal is to be made, to sequester includes deep cuts in the military. and many on the right and mini and communities with error bars, military contractors that employ a lot of people will art in to avoid this military cuts. what we have to say is the nation
. >> yesterday, the former assistant secretary of defense spoke out on what's happening there. >> president obama is really stuck now. that is is, he wants to court morsey but now that morsey is acting extra illegally, he he is almost forcing president obama to have to rebuke him publicly. and the question is whether president obama will do. so. >> >> we probably should have been quicker to reserve the praise. susan rice was the first one who spoke out immediately praising mohammed morsey. to charles krauthammer's point, it's the money that we hold power in all of this over a billion dollars a year goes to egypt. maybe that's something that the united states holds on to. s and congressman that want to defund egypt entirely. that money probably ought to be held back. >> they're the people once again making their demands. can you see from the videos here. >> looks like the arab spring, right? >> remember what happened in to your knowledge and spilled into egypt. this all started here and people got their wish and mubarak was forced to step down. >> that's the dahlia they know. that's what everybod
a conversation with -- someone from the financial industry who was trying to make a defense about things like carried interest, which isn't even invested income but gets taxed as if it was at 15%. there's a lot of effort put in and with uncertain return, and you need to -- and my -- i couldn't help. you know what else involved a lot of work with no return? writing books. i don't get that tax break, you don't get the tax break. there we are. >> just to clarify, this question of carried interest, when a fund, private equity heavenly fund, earns money from their customers, they earn a fee. that is their income. they're allowed to defer that. you can keep it invested in your business, and at the end, on any gain you capital gains, and now they transferred the income into capital gainses, chit is not. at it legalized fraud. [applause] >> confessions of a former hedge fund manager. health care. the phrase you used was how we manage our market. i remember one of the most profound papers i raid on why health care should be different. why doesn't free market work for health care? what other designs do
is going to keep business very cautious, very defensive and that's going to worry the equity market. >> it's interesting because it also comes against the landscape where we've seen chinese equities underperform, they reminded us very few of its member countries have great growth prospects going forward. that's probably wise. people are saying why is it that across the globe the u.s. fiscal cliff is such an issue. well, it's because sources of growth at this point are few and far between. >> that is the problem. where is growth going to come from. the one place that looked set for a reasonable 2013 was the u.s. economy. europe flat, china slower probably than this year. but a reasonable set of growth. if you put a 3.5%, 4% of gdp drag on that economy which was only growing at 2, 2.5, you're talking about throwing it into recession. that's why markets are taking heart this morning and equities remain nervous. >> the rhetoric, to avoid the fiscal cliff, taxes go up, dividend tax rates, personal tax rates, corporate tax rates go up, that that itself will cause economic weakness. what do you s
the income growth is out there. adding those guys helps us in defense issues and other things. we are not doing that now. >> republican support -- >> that may do it. >> so maybe to get it right an outward looking -- >> what would an american renewal agenda be comprised of? >> let's negotiate the first trade agreement in over four years. president obama is the first president not to negotiate a trade agreement. he got through -- >> he didn't negotiate south korea. >> those were negotiated -- >> they were negotiated by the previous administration but the bottom line is we have an opportunity right now in europe and asia to knock down barriers, tariffs and nontariff barriers. overwhelming support from the republican for the. i thing would've been tougher in the first of i understand politics, but this is a time to i think move on from that. the only point i would disagree with michael a little bit is we've got those problems that you just mentioned. europe and japan have been much worse than we, so we need to help our current largest trading partners it right by knocking down these b
issues. he had national defense, he played an important role in right-wing anti-communist popular politics and the late 50s and early 60s, this is one of the things that led him to switch parties, he opposed labor unions. he switches in the 50s and 60s, and by 1970, there were some diehard supporters of this. and there was also an important role in conservative and evangelical policy. he joins the board of bob jones university and he does it to win votes. bob jones had just moved his university. and thurman needed those votes. he lost in 1958 to the senate. that began a long relationship with a conservative and fundamentalist and evangelical persons who are looking to get involved in the process. we need to understand the racial politics in the midst of these conservative issues that he was very involved with. to see how they intersect with one another. i think in doing so, it gives us a history of what it looks like and helps us rethink not only what was going on in the south, but what was going on in the national and conservative political realm as well. the history of modern co
. >> they lost their key defense chief also. there was another player the past few days. mohamed morsi. he's largely credited by the u.s. for helping the ceasefire happen. he did something extraordinary overnight. he gave himself some new administrative powers which makes all his rulings immune from any kind of legal challenges. some people are saying this is just the next step of becoming more of a dictator here. was he taking advantage of the situation? >> well, we'll have to watch this closely. it appears the timing is curious. he's gotten the support and this bump particularly for his role in mediating the ceasefire from the united states and from others. he's seen as emerging stronger from this. this goes back to a time when egypt was appointed by mubarak and a check on the executive branch. what he said this is temporary. until the have a constitution, a temporary step. so we'll have to see if anything looks like it's being put into place permanently, could be a big problem for democracy. >> thanks to stuart holliday from the united nations. hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lowe

thought there was an interesting article. dave cote from honeywell, the guy who runs the defense sector there -- >> is he french now? >> no, what's his name? >> very sophisticated. >> they were talking about how defense has to be cut and i think that's an important statement. i think this whole thing starts with the defense cuts and everything else will fall in line. i do think we'll get some resolution on this, whether it spills into the new year doesn't matter. i think everybody is preparing for the imminent tax hike anyway. it's just going to come. on the issue of dividends and capital gains, that will be hung out there, will we go up to the ordinary, i don't think so. i think it will be some compromise. it's not that i'm hoping that, but i think that there will be. >> does it matter if we -- so we cave. we're afraid, we don't want anything bad to happen. so we're going to raise some taxes. we're going to cave, but we're not going to really cut spending, we don't want to hurt anyone. this is what we do and no one could fail. you know, a couple years ago -- is it bad that we don't tak
care in this country as other countries do. we spend seven times the amount in defense than the top seven countries in the world, including china. the tax code needs to be revamped. the whole idea of social security. and they're going on vacation. we're talking about a huge, huge dent in the society that we live in today. i don't think people really appreciate the sense of urgency or understand what they do. >> i don't think -- it seems like washington doesn't. i think what mario said, linking it to hurricane sandy, if the governors went away during this crisis, we would all be upset. let me switch gears and ask you about hurricane sandy. big hit to the insurance industry. tell me what you're seeing. is there an impact on willis? how does the cost element play out? >> right after it happened, i said that i thought that the impact would be $30 billion to $50 billion of insurance capacity. everybody was at 5 to 15. now everyone is around 20 to 25. i think at the end of the day, it will be closer to 30. what's happening here is that the property gets hit first, but then as time goes on
that the defense minister did a good job as well and a full 79% feel that the chief of staff -- they were pleased with his job in this campaign. the those seemed to be rather positive, of course, when people are looking at those numbers, looking ahead to next week's primaries. >> sreenivasan: so we saw a huge massive buildup of troops along the gaza border. what's happened to the israeli military now? are they withdrawing some? >> they are withdrawing some. at the same time the chief of staff has put out a statement that some will remain. we're in a cautious period right now. so while troops, yes, we were seeing them leave, we were seeing the tractors pull up and pull up the tanks and the tanks were withdrawing and so were the troops, we're getting ready to get out. some will be left behind. again, we're in this period right now of wait-and-see, measuring the situation. schools are not going back to operating tomorrow. those kids will still be staying home from school until the south. so the army is also at the same time keeping a presence down there. we don't get numbers. they won't give us numb
details are being worked out, the violence continues in gaza. overnight, israeli defense forces attacked again about 100 targets in the gaza strip. today, the militants within the gaza strip have launched about 30 rockets into israel, so the violence continues, even though we seem to be getting more and more people involved in making a cease fire come to a conclusion and end this violence as we begin this second week of this conflict. ross? >> thank you for that. we'll talk to you a little bit later. chapman bell from tel aviv. >>> officials from six world powers are meeting in brussels to plan for a possible new round of talks with iran to avert the threat of a military conflict. also, japan's trade deficit has widened, exacerbated by territorial tensions. now we have the details from tokyo. >> reporter: hi, ross. japan's finance ministry reported a bigger than expected trade deficit of $6.7 billion for october. that's a record for the month and marked the fourth straight month of red ink in japan's trade account. exports fell 6.5% on the year to $62.8 billion for the fifth month in a r
defense under control and spend these wasteful wars have added trillions. that's one place. we're going to have to get the health care costs down and right now our health care costs are between 50% and 100% higher than in any other country. and so we have this great opportunity to reduce health care costs, but that requires pretty deep reform that we've ducked so far because that requires going after the private health insurance industry which has been reaping huge profits. so we have to get the health care costs down. that will save a lot on the budget. >> okay. thank you very much. and, rick, let's eat now. the food snob diet. >> i do actually think -- >> that should have been the cover. >> maybe that should have been the cover. >> give peas a chance. >> i'll consult with you guys the day before. >> that's nice. that's good stuff right there. >> i have to talk about it here. >> we'll be right back. >> have a great thanksgiving. you won't find a "home rule" on every corner, a "stag provisions" down every block, or a "hugh and crye" in every town. these are the small businesses of ameri
that's what happened, although right now the israeli defense forces are not saying that they know of anyone being killed there. our source in gaza is this young man's brother. so we're waiting to get some sort of confirmation on the israeli side of exactly what happened. this could be problematic for what is already a very delicate seat fire. and it's interesting here in this country, you have quite a mixed reaction as to the cease fire itself. this gaza, they have been celebrating. here, not exactly. about 59% of the people, a majority in this country, said they wanted this offensive to go on further. they didn't want to end right away. they didn't being the jnidn't t done. a third of the people said they felt israeli troops should go in on the ground. we spent the day yesterday in the south, a place bombarded by rockets and we heard a similar sent chlt. a number of people tellings thaws they were very disappointed with netanyahu. yesterday good gaza, a national day of celebration. you saw people in the streets celebrating, they felt this was a victory for hamas, a sense of legit
